HORSESHOE BEND — Stops were hard to come by for both defenses on a night the teams combined to score a Franklin’s worth, but Kamiah’s offense cashed in on runs by Parker Whipple, Ryker Grimm and Taylor McAlister to give KHS its first playoff win since the state championship game two years ago.
The 62-38 victory over Horseshoe Bend last Friday night, Oct. 31, puts KHS on course for a quarterfinal rematch with the team the Kubs beat in the 1AD1 title game during their first year playing eight-man football.
Kamiah’s attack — a run-heavy setup that has averaged nearly 55 points per game this season — broke the first round game open with back-to-back scores by Grimm late in the first and early in the second quarters.
It had been a back-and-forth game before that, with a pair of runs by Whipple answering two passing touchdowns by Mustangs signalman Manny Sancho. When the Kubs finally answered Sancho with an interception return touchdown by Garrison Bretz, KHS led by 22.
McAlister scored four times during the second half.
Coming — Kamiah (7-2) will visit Butte County (9-0) at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 7, in Arco.
